Bayern Munich president Hoeness: Neymar just not that good

Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has taken a swipe at PSG star Neymar.

Neymar became the richest transfer in the history of football when he left Barcelona in August for €222m.

But Hoeness believes he's overrated, stating: "Neymar does not seem so good to me."

Discussing Bayern's transfer plans with some supporters, Hoeness insisted: "We cannot invest 222 million in Neymar, who does not seem so good, nor 180 in (Kylian) Mbappé, who I really like.

"We have to find our own way in this shark pit in which we move when talking about transfers for 100 and 200 million euros, we want to be at the top but not at any price."
